On March 11, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the Coronavirus (COVID-19) a pandemic. Since then, dramatic measures have been taken in the arts world which involve widespread performance cancellations, venue and office closings, and strict social distancing guidelines.
Kente Arts Alliance has joined the growing chorus of arts and culture organizations who believe the best way to vanquish this menace is to shut down programming until it is safe for our loyal patrons to return.
We regret to report that we are suspending LIVE programming at least until September 2021. We have not arrived at this decision lightly. Just about everyone in the local arts and cultural scene is working together to ensure that the timetable we choose will be the safest plan we can devise with the information that is available at the time.
When restrictions are lifted and we can safely hold in-person events, we will announce our Fall - Spring Schedule for 2021/2022.
While LIVE performances have been put on hold, you may have noticed that we have begun posting some “blasts from the past” selections from our archives. Enjoy.
Even though we have not yet set an exact date to re-open, we will continue to monitor the situation by following the advice of the leading authorities on infectious diseases in the country.
In the end, we will come back bigger and stronger than ever.
Stay Healthy - Stay Safe, and Stay Tuned.
